Two books about 9/11 for club discussion

Aug 02, 2017

Thomaston — The Thomaston Intergenerational Book Club will discuss two books, “Towers Falling” by Jewell Parker Rhodes; and “The Red Bandanna” by Tom Rinaldi, Tuesday, Aug. 15, at 2:30 p.m. at Thomaston Public Library, located in the Thomaston Academy building on Main Street/Route 1.

“Towers Falling” is a powerful Young Adult novel set 15 years after the 9/11 attacks. Award-winning author Rhodes deftly weaves historical and socio-political layers into a story that is at its heart about friendship, family and finding your way in a complicated world. Rinaldi's biography of Welles Crowther is the story of one man whose actions on 9/11 offer a lasting lesson on character, calling and courage.

On the third Tuesday of every month, the Intergenerational Book Club, a group of men and women of all ages comes together at the library to share opinions and ideas about the book selection. All are welcome. Those who live in Thomaston and would like to attend but need a ride should call the library at 354-2453 a week before the discussion.

The selection for Sept. 19 is “The Cowboy and the Cossack” by Clair Huffakers. It is available on the library's Kindles and there will be copies available at the circulation desk. For the complete list of all books chosen for 2017, visit
